Sending ASCII Values to serialport in c#

Hi friends

I am working on serialport in c# ,i am using C#2005 i have successfully done the serial communication with GSM modem and able to send and receive data ,
the main problem ,the serial port class in C# is accepting only ASCII values upto 127 only, the values those greater than 127 ,is automatically converted to value 63(?) ,ihave searched alot in the net and finally found from MSDN that ,serialport class accepts only ASCII values upto 127 and if we want to send values greater than that ,they have given the option as send UTFformat or UNICODE format but this does not solve my problem ,my hardware device which i am connecting through my serialport(rs-232 ) can under stand only ASCII values ,

Any one there to solve this problem ,my exact requirement is to send ASCII values greater than 127 should be send to seriaport class

string str=FF;//FF is the Hex value but i am converting it to char which is ASCII

the result of the above serialport.write () is returning ? becuse the value is greater than 127,
